Based on an organ of our choice, we had to create a structure in which we would then be living for 24 hours.

I have decided for a cochlea, a snail’s house-like organ in our ears that plays a very important role for the hearing.

Admiring its curves and the slight movement it makes, I wanted to create a light, floating structure that would also have a slightly changed shape each time I construct it since each person’s cochlea also has a bit of a different form. 

I chose that location because I wanted to make a hommage to the hearing, getting away from the city noise and smells, focusing only on the sounds of nature without other disturbances.

I decided for a location in a remote forest on the north-western border of Amsterdam where I set up the structure and spent 24 hours in it
